Top Wartime President Quotes

Wartime President Quotes By Ernest Holmes

Nature will not let us stay in any one place for too long. She will let us stay just long enough to gather the experience necessary to the unfolding and advancement of the soul. This is a wise provision, for should we stay there too long, we would become too set, too rigid, too inflexible. Nature demands change in order that we may advance. — Ernest Holmes

Wartime President Quotes By Karen E. Quinones Miller

If you don't like men who physically abuse women, stop telling your son it's okay to hit a little girl if she's bothering him. — Karen E. Quinones Miller

Wartime President Quotes By Ariel Levy

In 2004 our forty-second president, George W. Bush, the leader of the free world, proposed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to forever ban gay marriage
which was already illegal. In opinion polls, about 50 percent of this country said they thought Bush had the right idea. If half this country feels so threatened by two people of the same gender being in love and having sex (and, incidentally, enjoying equal protection under the law), that they turn their attention
during wartime
to blocking rights already denied to homosexuals, then all the cardio striptease classes in the world aren't going to render us sexually liberated. — Ariel Levy

Wartime President Quotes By Deyth Banger

And now
And Now is the time ... in which inside you are going to get bored (But you have time crystals, right!?) — Deyth Banger

The last thing I wanted to do was to be a wartime President. — Lyndon B. Johnson

Wartime President Quotes By Gore Vidal

To invent a war means that you've become a wartime president, and you can suspend much if not all of the Bill of Rights. — Gore Vidal

Wartime President Quotes By Richard Norton Smith

Presidents in wartime, embattled presidents, unpopular presidents, they all look to Lincoln. He's their patron saint because no president was more embattled or more unpopular than Lincoln was during his presidency. We think he was born on Mount Rushmore. Not so. — Richard Norton Smith

Wartime President Quotes By Scott McClellan

As I have heard Bush say, only a wartime president is likely to achieve greatness, in part because the epochal upheavals of war provide the opportunity for transformative change of the kind Bush hoped to achieve. In Iraq, Bush saw his opportunity to create a legacy of greatness. — Scott McClellan

Wartime President Quotes By Mark McKinnon

Go Hard or Go Home, but never go home hard! — Mark McKinnon

Wartime President Quotes By David Greenberg

Presidents who restrict civil liberties, even in wartime, are usually judged harshly for it. — David Greenberg

Wartime President Quotes By Francis Biddle

The Constitution has not greatly bothered any wartime President. — Francis Biddle

Wartime President Quotes By Charlie Savage

In all, the future secretary of defense and wartime vice president[, Dick Cheney,] would receive five deferments during the Vietnam War, protecting him from service during his draft-eligible years. — Charlie Savage

Wartime President Quotes By David Greenberg

One thing that does seem to me to be fairly consistent is that presidents who restrict civil liberties, even in wartime, are usually judged harshly for it. So most people agree that one of the worst stains on the reputation of FDR, who is widely considered a great president, is the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Likewise, Lincoln is judged harshly for the suspension of habeas corpus. — David Greenberg

Wartime President Quotes By Bernard Ramm

No other book has been so chopped, knifed, sifted, scrutinized, and vilified. What book on philosophy or religion or psychology or belles lettres of classical or modern times has been subject to such a mass attack as the Bible? With such venom and skepticism? With such thoroughness and erudition? Upon every chapter, line and tenet? — Bernard Ramm

Wartime President Quotes By Candida R. Moss

When, in 2012, Newt Gingrich was asked about how his religious beliefs would affect his conduct should he become president, the Republican nominee hopeful answered, "One of the reasons I am running is there has been an increasingly aggressive war against religion and in particular against Christianity" in the United States. For a potential president to state that he sees himself as a wartime candidate who will defend his party against other citizens is astonishing. There is not even a pretense here of "united states". — Candida R. Moss

Wartime President Quotes By Teresa Bloomingdale

To balance my own checkbook each month, I simply record whatever is necessary in the following manner: '37 cents to cover embezzlement by somebody at the bank. — Teresa Bloomingdale

Wartime President Quotes By Andrew Sullivan

That's what torture does: it creates a miasma of unknowing, about as dangerous a situation in wartime as one can imagine. This hideous fate was made possible by an inexperienced president with a fundamentalist psyche and a paranoid and power-hungry vice-president who decided to embrace "the dark side" almost as soon as the second tower fell, and who is still trying to avenge Nixon. Until they are both gone from office, we are in grave danger the kind of danger that only torturers and fantasists and a security strategy based on coerced evidence can conjure up. — Andrew Sullivan

Wartime President Quotes By Edward Gibbon

The dark cloud, which had been cleared by the Phoenician discoveries, and finally dispelled by the arms of Caesar, again settled on the shores of the Atlantic, and a Roman province [Britain] was again lost among the fabulous Islands of the Ocean. — Edward Gibbon

Wartime President Quotes By Francis George

That's the purpose of law: to defend those who otherwise could not defend themselves. We will be together in this struggle for the good of society itself, believing with Alexis de Tocqueville that churches and religious bodies play a crucial role, a mediating role, in fostering a nation's civic life. — Francis George
